It’s Kickball Championship night at Moya and, like always, it was a barn burner of excitement. Let’s get right to it:
In the first semi-final matchup, Balls & Dolls looked to take out last seasons’ champs Drunk Again and Looking to Score. The game started out fairly even with 2 quick runs from each side. Drunk Again looked anything but……scoring 3 more in the final innings to take the victory heading into the finals.
In other semi-final action, Brew Ballers took on I’d Hit That to see who would fill the last spot in the championship game. Both teams had a hard time scoring for the first few innings in this nail biter. Both teams traded 1 run apiece midway through before I’d Hit That trickled in one last run in the final inning to take the Dub-Ya! What a close game with lots on the line……well done!
It all came down to this….last year’s champs, Drunk Again and Looking to Score, taking on the strong defenders of I’d Hit That for all the marbles. Who would wave that Championship Banner this season…..the new competitor or the returning veterans looking to become a legacy?! Drunk again looked pretty sober all night in taking out their previous opponent and I’d Hit That had done just that to get to the finals. This game was also a nail biter with the crowd fully engaged in every pitch and every at bat. Both teams kept the scoring down by some great defense and anticipatory shifts to cover all the bases. Drunk Again scored first only to be followed by 2 of their own from I’d Hit That. In the end, the champs proved why they are the best….pushing in 2 late runs to take the win at 4-2 at last! Wow…..this is how we spell Championship Night on the diamond!
Lustre Pearl East was the place to be after the last out, where gauntlets were thrown down for next season and lots of high fives for this season. Kickball in Austin is definitely where it’s at!
